We are thrilled to share some of the great things happening at Habitat DC-NOVA in 2024! Follow our social media channels for updates on our programs, events, and more!

Women Build 2024

Women Build strives to engage, mobilize, and empower women and people of diverse gender identities in the critical work of affordable housing. This year, Habitat DC-NOVA’s Women Build is setting out to raise $250,000 to build 2 safe, decent, and affordable homes for local women and their families. 

Through this campaign, Habitat seeks to create a space for volunteers of all gender identities to participate in affordable housing work, learn new skills, and give back to their community.

Ways to get Involved in Women Build 2024

Through Women Build, companies can engage their employees, highlight women in leadership, and give back to the community.

Partner Highlight: Solution Street

Solution Street is a software consulting company based in Herndon, Virginia. Each year their employees nominate and vote to select a nonprofit organization to champion and fundraise for the year. For 2024, they have selected Habitat for Humanity DC-NOVA! 

Cristina Little, Recruiting Team Member at Solution Street, shared “We are looking forward to volunteering with the Habitat ReStores this year and organizing a build day. In terms of fundraising, we like to organize both online and in-person activities throughout the year such as art nights or group games for various sporting events like the Super Bowl and March Madness. Our biggest fundraising event coming up this year that is open to the public is our Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, September 13th, 2024 at Herndon Centennial Golf Course. All funds raised from the tournament will be matched by Solution Street and donated to Habitat for Humanity DC-NOVA. If you are interested in registering a group of 4 to play in the tournament (or being a sponsor) contact Cristina Little for more information: clittle@solutionstreet.com . We would love to have you there!”

Join us at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in NW DC on Thursday, March 14 at 5:45pm for our next Habitat Young Professionals event – Habitat 101! This event – for members and prospective members alike – will orient you to Habitat Young Professionals and Habitat and answer your questions about supporting local affordable housing. We will also have a virtual option so if you aren’t able to attend in person, join us online!
